Before you make the decision to enroll in an online course or program, make sure you’ve done your homework and have detailed information about the programs and courses offered.

The following are several key questions to ask an online school if you’re interested in enrolling.

  2. What can I expect from the instructors? Inquire about your instructor’s reputation or background. Are there any instructor evaluations that you might be able to review?
  3. What type of support is offered? Information should be provided on how to access guidance, counseling and technical support services needed once your participation begins.
  4. How does the instructor communicate with students? When there are concerns and questions, is there a clear line of communication between student and instructor?
  5. What is expected of me? This might be the time to ask for an example of lessons, method of administering assignments and what systems are in place for assistance if, and when, needed.
